Communication around Covid-19 by Care Alliance Ireland
In light of the Covid19 situation, we have reconfigured our organisations activities.
We have just published a new resource;
If the virus spreads through the community, family carers will be vulnerable. The contents of the resource are based on existing resources used widely in the UK.
We recommend that now is the time for family carers to prepare.
- Nominate a Backup Carer
- Making an Emergency Plan – contact details etc.
- Emergency Plan workbook- from https://www.enable.org.uk/ (UK)
- In Case of Emergency (ICE)
- Social Media/ Community Apps
Please do share as you see fit.
The guidance document will be updated as necessary. Should you notice any inaccuracies in it or have suggestions for improvement please email email@example.com
Over the coming days we will be setting up a private moderated family carer support group online – through the Facebook page that we manage https://www.facebook.com/nationalcarersweek.
The service will seek to immediately mitigate the impact of the sudden withdrawal of a number of face-to-face family carer support services that have occurred in recent days.
When this goes live, we shall communicate details of this with you and would appreciate dissemination of this to those family carers you work with.
Please, keep safe and well in the coming weeks,
Liam, Zoe and the Care Alliance team.
